"A SALUTE TO OUR HERITAGE: What Makes A True Astrologer?"
Dell Horoscope, June, 2000, pp. 66-77. (Portions reprinted

"JOHN ADDEY was an outstanding early leader
in the ongoing effort to establish a general theory of
astrology through advanced modern harmonics and intensive
investigation of the symbolic basis of numbers. After World
War II, he joined the Astrological Lodge of the
Theosophical Society in England, and continued astrology
studies that had begun while he was a college student
working toward his Masters degree.
"He later founded the
prestigious Astrological Association, dedicated to
furthering serious development of an integrated basis for
astrology. Despite extensive attention given to the
quantitative side, Addey's work was not simply materialistic.
The principles of cycle and number that he developed through
the study of harmonic effects have ancient roots in the mystical
Greek philosopher, Pythagoras.
Charles Harvey wrote that for Addey, "the universe is a
manifest expression of an inner or higher order of Truth,
which may be revealed in part by the observation of the cosmos
as the 'written' Word of God."
